Video: ‘Finding Nemo 3D’ Gets Updated for Theatrical Release

Steven Spielberg did it. George Lucas did it. And now it appears that Pixar’s own Andrew Stanton is the next to go back and edit a film that had been previously released. As introduced recently on Ellen Degeneres’ talk show, Finding Nemo 3D, which will swim into theaters on September 14, takes synergy to a whole nother level. Whereas Apple is notorious for using Pixar film clips in advertising its products, Pixar has now taken to turning the tables and well.. you’ll see.

Pixar’s ‘Brave’ Involved in Trademark Dispute with Atlanta Braves

'If I Were an Atlanta Brave' by Joseph D'Andrea Princess Merida may be a force to reckon with when it comes to certain projectiles, but she won’t be proficient when it comes to baseballs or tomahawks if the Atlanta Braves have anything to say about it. While the recent news of Paramount Resources’ Pixar Petrolium is making a big splash, another significant war has been raging quietly on the trademark front — for months no less.

It all started back in March of last year when we reported on trademark applications which appeared to have been confirming a title change for what was then known as The Bear and the Bow, but is now known to be Brave.

Disney, Pixar, ‘Star Tours’ Among Nominees for 2011 Annie Awards

The International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood, today announced its nominations for the 39th Annual Annie Awards, recognizing the year’s best in the field of animation.

Pixar Animation Studios finds itself competing for the top honors in the categories for Best Animated Feature, with Cars 2 and La Luna for Best Animated Short Subject. Interestingly enough, although La Luna won’t be formally released until it opens with Brave in 2012, it has been screened enough to satisfy requirements for many awards including the Annie and the Oscar (for which it has been shortlisted for a nod). This means that it’s also competing against The Ballad of Nessie from Walt Disney Animation Studios, which played before Winnie the Pooh (which does not find itself nominated).

Disney/Pixar’s ‘La Luna’ Shortlisted for Animated Short Oscar

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences today announced that out of the 44 animated short films submitted for Oscar consideration, ten have been shortlisted to be further considered for nominations in the category. Among the ten selected is La Luna from Pixar Animation Studios, the short that will play before Brave when it opens next year. Pixar Animation Studios has quietly arranged for the short to show this year enough to meet eligibility requirements, meaning an Oscar nomination — let alone a win — will become a valuable marketing tool for Brave in 2012.
